Hi, I was hoping maybe someone on here may have information on Eddoes. Basically, my grandmother is in the later stages of chronic kidney failure, and very close to going on dialysis. As with all kidney patients, too much potassium in a diet can be very dangerous, and as a result she has been told to pretty much avoid potatoes, especially new potatoes. I got a flyer in the door this morning from SuperValu and there were Eddoes on it. I'd never heard of them, and when I tried looking them up I can't really get any solid nutritional data on them, and I wouldn't even dream of suggesting them as an alternative unless I was sure about their potassium content.
Can anyone on here help me out, or know of anywhere I could contact to find out? My grandmother is set in her ways and loves her potato and its killing her not to be able to eat it, anything I could do to make it a bit easier for her would be so great.
